I tried to make a chocolate fudge cake today. It was my first attempt at the frosting and it flat out refused to thicken enough to use on the cake.

However!

It has turned into a really, really nice chocolate fudge sauce! I don't want to throw it away but I don't know what else to do with it except for put it on top of ice cream. What can I make with fudge sauce?

Also, can I freeze it? I have loads. It has sugar, chocolate, milk, corn syrup and vanilla essence in it.

Cheers!

you can leave it in the frig for a while...

I don't know how well it would freeze though, I think the thawed consistency would be pretty grainy and watered down. But, there is no harm in trying! I would put it in a ziplock bag and let it freeze flat, that way it could thaw evenly and maybe not be so runny.

Thanks! A friend of mine said to put some cream of tartare in to stop the separating while freezing. Hmm.

I may keep some in the fridge and try freezing another load. I won't lose anything because it was a mistake anyway!

Thats a very positive way of thinking!

And, even though its a mistake, right it down because it may turn out to be something super yummy!

Ooh that is a good idea Tuck! It'd make the cake really moist....Hmmmmm.

I have 3 layers of cake that I was supposed to sandwich together. I think I will use chocolate buttercream on 2 of them, and save the third one and soak the sauce into it.

If I don't like it I will send it to work with OH, they love anything chocolate. ;)

Put a spoonful in a cup of coffee for coffee mocha. Ditto in hot milk for hot chocolate. Spread over warm brownies. Warm it a bit and have a fruit fondue. Glaze a baked pie shell with some, let it set, then add a pudding filling for black bottom pie. If you need more ideas, just ask.

I think Neon needs to invite us all over for a chocolate overload fest.

You could thicken it by adding some chocolate mix and/or powdered sugar.

Well! It's the day after and what did I do?

I had three layers of chocolate fudge cake sponge to do something with. I took Tuck's suggestion and covered it in the fudge sauce to soak in and moisten it up:



It was really sticky, but really good! I sent OH to work with it and he had happy workmates! happy0203.gif They work hard and I like to treat them sometimes, and they love my baking!

I used chocolate buttercream to sandwich together and cover the remaining two layers, and flavoured it with a little orange essence to add a little extra to the very chocolatey taste. A few sprinkles on top and yum!





And there is a container of chocolate fudge sauce left in the fridge to try new things with too!
